Grad School

I am officially done with my first year of grad school! It feels pretty great to say that. As crazy as this year has been, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I feel as if I have grown as a writer and have learned things about myself that I would have never known.

Here’s a few things that I have learned:

  1. I am actually a feminist (and it isn’t a bad word).
  2. I can write a 15 page paper in a weekend
  3. But I can also write one in 2 page increments
  4. Giant stacks of readings — no problem
  5. I have no idea how to fill my time if I am not doing homework

If you have ever considered going back to school, I would absolutely recommend it. It is one of the best things that I have done for myself.

June Writing Prompts

The summer solstice is June 20, but June 1 is the start of meteorological summer. The warm summer nights are just beginning, my favorite time to write in my journal.
